History

Built in 1923. The structure is a 3 1/2 story, 46220 square foot, office building. Minnesota Historical Society records indicate that the Hardware Mutual Insurance Building was located at this address from 1924 to 1964.

The current owner of record is the City Of Lakes Waldorf School. Watershed High School used to be located at this address, as was the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Lavender Magazine, the American Refugee Committee, accountant Neal Thoelke, Access to Employment, Inc., the Center for Policy, Planning and Performance, the Tibetan American Foundation, and Freedom of Speech, Inc.

The City of Lakes Waldorf School was founded by six mothers in 1988 as the Waldorf City School and is an independent and self-administered school with a 40 member teaching and administrative staff serving more than 200 children from preschool through eighth grade. There are more than 170 Waldorf schools in the United States, Mexico and Canada. The Watershed High School is Minnesota’s only Waldorf Charter high school and was founded in 1996 by a group of City of Lakes Waldorf students who wished to continue their Waldorf education beyond middle school and became a public charter school in 2002.[1]
